So you’ve probably heard of Google Buzz by now, and probably already made your decision on loving it or hating it, but what you might not be so familiar with is Google Buzz for mobile. In case you aren’t connected enough already, you can keep up with your Twitter, Facebook, and now your Google Buzz account while away from your computer. You can use it just as you would the original Google Buzz, allowing you to post and keep up with your friends’ buzz posts while you are on the run.
One awesome feature of Google Buzz for mobile is that it will identify places near your current location. You can choose a place, attach as a location tag within your buzz post, or see what other buzzers have said about it.
How do you use Google Buzz on your mobile?
Buzz.google.com > Access it through your iPhone/Android browser. Choose to view recent posts made by the people you follow under the Followers view, or choose the Nearby view to see posts by people that are close by.
Google Maps for mobile > There is now a layer over your Google Maps page that allows you to view Google Buzz from people near you, or choose from anywhere on the map. This feature lets you post buzz within this layer and even attach photos from your phone. If you visit a Place Page to post about a certain place or see what other people have said about it.
A few additional features to try out:
Buzz Shortcut > Quickly start a buzz post by clicking tapping the buzz icon in the top right corner of google.com.
Voice Shortcut > If you have an Android, use the quick search widget, if you have an iPhone, use the Google Mobile App and say “post buzz” followed by what you’d like to post. Welcome to the future.
